Answer:  BULL MARKET

(He better not steer him wrong!  I’m sure the rancher can tell the difference between a bull and a steer.  But, if he did make that mistake his herd would only increase by one.  We had no new clue words today, but all of the jumblings appear to be new.  I thought the jumbling of “taken” was pretty good, and I also liked the one for “calmly”.  I saw both “trump” and “cobalt” immediately.  The answer letter layout was another great jumble, and the answer made for a good, stinky pun.  Maybe not as stinky as that market, but, then again, to a country boy the smell of manure in the morning . . . smells like victory.  Mighty fine cartoon/drawing there, pahdnuh.  Where’s that supposed to be . . . Montana, Wyoming, Texas???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”   —   Nathaniel Hawthorne

(One of the many reasons why autumn is my favorite season.  Especially when it gets a little brisk, and the leaves change from green . . . to red, gold and rust, and eventually fall to the ground.  There’s nothing like the feel, and the rustling sound, of sloshing through the crisp fallen leaves.  There’s a scent of decay in the air, but it’s not depressing in the least.  Like the smell right after a spring rain, it reminds you of the wondrous cycle of life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
